Annual Report for FY 2020-2021
Last fiscal year, Friends of the Library of Los Altos total income was $110,000 and we contributed $13,000 to fund library programs and activities. The Covid-19 global pandemic and the subsequent library and book sale closures resulted in a significant drop in revenue over 2018-2019.
